World ME Day ( 1 May 2024)

Carol Monaghan: ...four people with ME has it severely, which means they are house-bound or bed-bound and need 24-hour care. Between 2017 and 2021, 62 deaths have been attributed to ME, and the tragic death of Maeve Boothby-O’Neill highlights the need for urgent action. Maeve was repeatedly hospitalised and discharged due to a lack of specialist services for ME patients. The absence of known treatments...

Brexit: Devolved Administrations - Motion to Take Note (25 Jan 2018)

Lord Hennessy of Nympsfield: ...a fine and fascinating read—we find very little on Scotland, apart from a few pages on fisheries. For example, those two formidable figures of post-war Scottish politics, Jo Grimond and Lord Boothby, were eloquent about the needs of inshore fishermen seeking their harvest in the testing waters of The Minches, the exquisite seas around the northern isles and the fishing grounds within...

Firearms Residue Testing (Criminal Cases) (20 Dec 2011)

Lynne Featherstone: ..., Andrew Rennison, to consider this type of evidence. I cannot give an answer on whether there will be a review, but I will ask his opinion of whether there should be a review. In terms of the Boothby report, my hon. Friend has requested that a report on the allegations of police misconduct in connection with the case made by Mr Cleeland be made available. The Court of Appeal ordered the...

Deputy Speakers: Debate on the Address — [1st Day] (25 May 2010)

David Tredinnick: .... There was no stop order, and by the following bank holiday Monday the tarmac had been laid and the concrete and infrastructure were there. I have been approached by councillors from Ratby-Chris Boothby and Ozzy O'Shea-who deal with this all the time. They tell me that the most difficult aspect is circular 01/2006, issued by the then Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, which tips the...

Scottish Parliament: Fife (Platform of Partnership) ( 8 Oct 2008)

Ted Brocklebank: ..., and there is former First Minister Henry McLeish, from Kennoway. Good Fifers, all. As most Liberals are aware, the house where Jo Grimond was born in St Andrews was owned by the family of Bob Boothby, who may have represented Buchan at Westminster but was always proud of his Fife roots. Fife has produced great thinkers, such as Adam Smith—he will probably be birling in his grave in the...

Community Radio (29 Oct 2007)

Ian Lucas: into getting involved in politics was seeing programmes of oral history on television. I particularly remember a series called "The 20th Century Remembered", with Fenner Brockway and Lord Boothby talking about their experiences. Local areas in the UK have very powerful stories to be told by local people. For example, I heard a digital story about Erlas hall in Wrexham, where the...

The Economy and Welfare Reform (25 May 2005)

Alex Salmond: ...for the fact that Scotland currently has the highest unemployment rate of any nation in the United Kingdom and the lowest growth rate of any country in Europe. One of my predecessors, the late Bob Boothby who represented East Aberdeenshire, once described the Secretary of State for Scotland as the scullery-maid of the Cabinet, in the sense that he had to clean up the mess left by other...

Convention on the Future of Europe ( 9 Sep 2003)

Lord Howe of Aberavon: ...human beings who have to deal with it, even if it is not popular reading. The document reflects an observation that Winston Churchill made way back in 1949. On a train ride to Strasbourg, Robert Boothby asked him what exactly he meant in his Zurich speech by talking about a "kind of" United States of Europe. Churchill refrained from giving an answer, and said, "You must remember, we are...

Local Government Bill [H.L.] ( 7 Feb 2000)

the Earl of Longford: ...enough, and I speak as one who has promoted "homosexualism", if you like, among the gay lobby. Forty years ago, when I promoted the Wolfenden report--no one else would touch it--the late Lord Boothby referred to me as the unpaid leader of the homosexual lobby. That report was in favour of homosexuals not being prosecuted if they were over the age of 21. Nevertheless, as the noble Lord has...

European Convention on Human Rights ( 6 Mar 1996)

Mr Jacques Arnold: ...are certain countries in Western Europe with large Communist elements, which attach the greatest possible importance to the support which this Court can give them in certain circumstances. Robert Boothby, the then hon. Member for Aberdeenshire, East, said in the same debate that the Communist tactic is a brilliantly devised technique of infiltration, treason and ultimate violence, and the...

Sexual Offences (Conspiracy and Incitement) Bill ( 2 Feb 1996)

Mr John Marshall: ...inexpensive holidays. The advent of the package tour industry has enabled many millions of people to visit far-off lands and to enjoy the cuisine and culture of other countries. In the 1930s, Bob Boothby once took his lady friend to Portugal because he thought that no one would see him there. Today, he would have to go somewhat further afield. In the 1950s, when I lived in Glasgow, people...

Orders of the Day — Bank of England (Amendment) Bill (28 Jan 1994)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: .... Members must know that in 1946 the Bank of England was nationalised. That measure was supported by all sections of the House of Commons at the time. Many people, such as Mr. Macmillan and Robert Boothby, felt that during the 1930s the Bank of England had imposed on the country too stringent a monetary policy, and that the independent Bank of England had made the slump deeper and more...

Orders of the Day — Finance (No. 2) Bill (26 Apr 1993)

Alex Salmond: ...Secretary of State for Scotland is allowing it to be known that he was not even consulted before the tax change was put in place. One of my predecessors for the old East Aberdeenshire seat—Bob Boothby—perfectly described the position of the Secretary of State for Scotland as the "scullery maid" of the Cabinet. Here is a fine example of that reduced position if it is true that the...

Orders of the Day — European Communities (Amendment) Bill: Economic and Monetary Union (19 Apr 1993)

Mr Nicholas Budgen: I am sure that I do not need to remind the hon. Gentleman that, on Second Reading of the Bill to nationalise the Bank of England, Robert Boothby voted in favour and a number of Keynesian Tories abstained because they took the view that the bank had been a major cause of the unemployment and depression in the 1930s. They believed that there should be political control of the bank.
